CFO James Connelly: Driving Finances at Henry Ford Health System
James Connelly, MBA, CPA, is behind the wheel of Detroit-based Henry Ford Health System's financial strategy as the non-profit system's CFO and executive vice president of finance and administration.
Founded nearly a century ago by its automotive tycoon namesake, the system is one of the largest integrated health systems in the country with five acute-care hospitals, and employing more than 23,000 people across the system. It also has a health insurance business and medical group.
Moody's Investors Service in January affirmed the "A1" rating on its $854.9 million in outstanding bonds, attributed in part to the system's low debt-to-revenue ratio and seasoned administrative team that includes Mr. Connelly.
Mr. Connelly has previously served in Cincinnati as CFO of TriHealth and COO of Bethesda North Hospital. He also was an auditor with Arthur Andersen in Detroit for 15 years.
